LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Culinary Union early Friday announced that they reached tentative agreement with both Sahara Las Vegas and El Cortez on new 5-year contracts covering 850 hospitality workers between the 2 properties.

“Congratulations to workers on winning the BEST CONTRACT EVER!” the union wrote in a social media post.

The union initially set 5:00 A.M. deadline Friday morning for workers at those properties as well as other downtown and Strip properties without a deal. However, the union revealed that the strike deadline has been pushed back to Monday morning at 5:00 A.M. for 8 resorts without deals:

-Virgin Hotels Las Vegas

The Culinary Union said negotiations continue for the 8 remaining properties that would cover about 3,600 workers. Union members plan to hold informational pickets Friday and Saturday from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. outside of the downtown casinos where the union is still negotiating contracts.
